Here are some tips for meeting Disney® Princesses during your time in the parks.

  1. Download the Disneyland app or pick up a printed schedule at the gate for scheduled appearances for the day and keep a lookout because sometimes your first princess encounter is as you enter the park.
  2. The Royal Hall in Fantasy Faire is a must stop because where better to meet a princess than near a castle. Every day three princesses hold court here in their own special nooks.

It also gives you a chance to hang out with everyone’s favorite sea turtle, Crush at “Turtle Talk with Crush.”

They might be rushing to a ball or their next royal engagement or playing their part in one of the park’s amazing parades or shows.
